The Western Cape Department of Community Safety has briefed the Standing Committee on the motivation and need for a Community Safety Bill, which, if successful, will be unique in South Africa.

The Democratic Alliance’s Mark Wiley says the purpose of the Bill is to give clarity and direction to the interaction and contribution of civil society and the Provincial Department of Community Safety and that of the South African Police Service.

Wiley says that there has not been sufficient guidelines with regards to how the relationship between society and the SAPS.

“The bill will make it a lot clearer and will help with accreditation and legalisation of neighbourhood watches; and will help create a complaints line” Wiley added
